2017 R100RS 40th Anniversary Rally

Post by Alan Coles on Fri Dec 04, 2015 4:35 pm

2017 R100RS 40th Anniversary Rally

When: 2017-09-14 to 2017-09-17 (Thursday - Sunday)
Where: Harleysville PA (1,500 km from Halifax)
Guest of Honour: Hans Muth (designer of the BMW R65LS, R90S, R100RS, RT, R80GS/PD, R80/100RT, K1, and Suzuki Katana, etc)
Special Guests:
Hans Joachim Siebenrock - Vintage BMW Parts Supplier
Klaus Herder - Motorrad Magazine, Editor


For anyone with an R100RS - this should be considered as close to a "Must Do" event as you are likely to find.


The same folks who put together the great R90S 40th Anniversary in 2014 have announced the creation of a 40th Anniversary Rally for the R100RS.

Open only to R100RS BMWs on a preferential basis and then owners of Hans' other creations if not at capacity. The Rally is limited to 100-150 as of 2017-02-03 there are only a few openings left so drop Todd an email if you wish to be included -
Todd Trumbore -  send it to: motorrader at verizon dot com

Tom Cutter has stated that he wants to be involved with the Rally and there is rumour that Udo Gietl and Todd Schuster might be convinced to attend (BMW Championship Racing Program).

I will update this announcement as any additional information becomes available.

I've, just heard back from Todd Trumbore (Rally Chair) and the Rally is open to "all R100RS owners who will attend on/with their R100RS".

There is a restricted admittance to the first 150 RS riders who sign-up. Currently as of noon today there were 80-85 on the list. So if you'd like to attend I would suggest you do it within the next few days. Currently, there is no formal registration process or fees yet, that will come sometime next year.

To be added to the list you must email Todd directly at: motorrader@verizon.net

The Rally itself will be held at Todd Trumbore's place (Harleysville, PA), likely in September 2017 (I'm hoping for early-mid Sept, but we'll see).

Don, you could certainly hook up with Brook Reams, out of Arvada on Route 76. He's trying to decide if he'll ride his '77 or '83 if he comes either way he's got some work to do.

Yes!!  Brook is a BIG part of our Colorado Airhead community, he and I have discussed riding out together.  We have SEVERAL RS'ers here along the front range, may have a group. Smile

Chatted with him today and the 77 is going to get the nod. Smile

Yes, he sent me a PM today letting me know that Todd had gotten back to him and he's definitely looking forward to it.

Brook sent me some of the stuff your Colorado group has done, to help with something I'm involved with here, and I have to give both of you kudos for being very active contributors to what appears to be a great group.

Alan,

We just have fun and help each other!!

We have some very active members.

Doesn't hurt we have Dick (Airmarshal), Brook, Matt, and several other very knowledgeable "Headz" who live in the area. ;-)
